Products built into the core platform will enable online rent payment processing and resident services, plus mobile capabilities
SANTA BARBARA, CALIF., Nov. 8, 2012— Yardi announced today that multifamily real estate development and management firm Simpson Housing LLLP® has selected Yardi Voyager™ as its core property management and accounting system. Seeking efficient management of multiple business operations from a single platform, the company will also use products from the Yardi Multifamily Suite™, including Yardi Payment Processing™ and RentCafe™.
“We wanted one system for operations and financial data, and it’s easier to construct and maintain such a system using a single vendor rather than several,” said Mike Casper, vice president and chief information officer for Simpson Housing. “In evaluating our options, we identified ease of use for our onsite employees and the ability to accommodate mobile applications as Voyager’s key strengths for us.”
Simpson Housing will use the RentCafe resident portal to give residents at its apartment communities the convenience of several online services, including online payments, 24/7 leasing with renewals and maintenance service requests. RentCafe is fully integrated with Yardi Voyager. Simpson Housing will also leverage Yardi’s mobile leasing and maintenance service request capabilities.
Simpson Housing will replace its existing accounts receivable process with Yardi Payment Processing, which combines Yardi Online Payments™ and Yardi CHECKscan™ as a complete solution for rent and other payments. Payments made online by Simpson Housing’s residents through the RentCafe resident portal will be automatically entered directly into Yardi Voyager, and deposits to Simpson Housing’s bank will be automated.
“Yardi is pleased to provide a platform that will help Simpson Housing make its business more efficient and help increase its occupancy and retention through enhanced resident satisfaction,” said Terri Dowen, senior vice president of sales for Yardi.
